This wonderful set depicts the Greek Goddess Psyche lying in Cupids arms. The bookends appear to have been copper patinated finish. The patina on the bookends gives it a wonderful aged look as it should. It appears to not have been polished. The markings on the back are very very faint but it does appear to maybe have the C within the triangle and circle. Please see pictures for condition.
Located in Rocky Hill, CT, the Connecticut Foundry produced a line of sand cast metal bookends that had a distinctive style characterized by very soft details. They manufactured solely in iron. All but a few of their bookends, from the late 1920s to early 1930s were made with a simple patinated finish. Rare examples of polychrome bookends do exist. Their line of bookends went out of production sometime between the Great Depression and the beginning of World War II.
Measures: 5 3/4" L x 5 3/8" H x 1 3/4" W
